For Y*E*A*R*S I would start my presents for the following year over Christmas vacation and normally have two or three finished before Christmas break was over. So, basically, I am on the same schedule as I have been for 38 years . . . before I went to college, I wasn't too crafty :(
I have noticed braided cowls have been popular this last year. "Please, Oh Please stay popular until Christmas 2015" I am thinking. Here is a photo of why.
I made the one on the left for my nephews' wife who teaches high school English. Their school colors are red and black.
The one on the right is for my youngest niece. She likes greens and browns.
The COOLEST thing about them is not only are they buttoned together BUT they can be unbuttoned and two can be buttoned end to end to make a longer cowl! I love the fact that they will get more than one present in these cowls.
All proceeds from this pattern will be donated
to a no-kill dog and cat maternity shelter in Western New York
or a no kill dog shelter in my home state of Indiana.
The Fur~Babies and I thank you for your purchase
